Convergence for agricultural development pushed

  • by

THE Office of the Provincial Agriculturist (OPA) of Negros Occidental is pushing for a convergence with various government agencies in its bid to ensure agricultural development in the province, its top official said.

Provincial Agriculturist Japhet Masculino, who attended the Joint System Management Committee Meeting for local government units (LGUs) covered by the Bago River Irrigation System at Sugarland Hotel in Bacolod City on Wednesday, said he will ask Governor Alfredo Maraon Jr. to issue an Executive Order (EO) asking government agencies to constitute a convergence group along with OPA.

These agencies include the National Irrigation Administration (NIA), Philippine Crop Insurance Corp. (PCIC), National Food Authority (NFA), Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice), Land Bank of the Philippines (LBP), Department of Agriculture (DA) as well as LGUs in the province.
